Max Reinhart is coming off a breakout season in the AHL last year, with 63 points in 66 games for Abbotsford, and could wage a serious challenge for a Flames' roster spot out of training camp.

The Flames have an abundant source of young offensive talent down the middle, highlighted by their first round draft choice Sam Bennett. At 22 years old and possessing a similar skill set to Bennett, Reinhart has acclimated his game to the pro ranks very well over the past two years. With the experience of playing with grown men and considering his entry level contract is already in its second year of effect, Reinhart might have the inside track to a roster spot. The Flames' prospects level of play will ultimately determine where they play this autumn, but don't be surprised if this intelligent, playmaking, two-way center hangs around come October.

Sheldon Brookbank will reportedly attend training camp with the Calgary Flames on a tryout.

He was hoping to stay with Chicago, where he's played the past two seasons. "The Hawks said that they liked me and they'd like to have me back if it worked but obviously they're a little strapped under the cap," Brookbank said. "It didn't quite pan out as I'd hoped. It's not to say that it's totally over and done with. You never know what could happen from now until the start of the season. As for now, I'm moving on and I'm going to Calgary and I'm going to try to make their team." Brookbank had seven points and 64 hits in 48 games last year.

Lance Bouma has signed a one-year contract with the Calgary Flames.

He notched five goals and 15 points in 78 games last season. Bouma also finished second in the NHL among all forwards with 87 blocked shots.

Sean Monahan feels up for the challenge of building on his impressive rookie season.

"I think there will be more pressure this year," Monahan said. "There's an expectation now. I have to be better than last year. That's something I want to do and something I've worked really hard on over the summer to be ready for that." He's bulked up during the off-season and expects to weigh more than 205 pounds when training camp begins. Monahan cracked Calgary's lineup as an 18-year-old last year and he managed to make an impact, scoring 22 goals and 34 points in 75 games.

Devin Setoguchi is thankful to get a fresh start in Calgary after he signed with the team over the weekend.

"It's been a long summer," he said. "It's not easy sitting there and being one of the only free agents out there. I'm just thankful I got it done. It's going to give me a chance to prove a lot to myself and to the team I'm joining that I can still play and be a leader." Setoguchi will be looking to bounce back from a difficult season as a member of the Jets. In 2013-14, he recorded just 11 goals and 27 points in 75 games.

Devin Setoguchi signed a one-year, $750,000 contract with the Calgary Flames on Saturday.

The 27 year-old Alberta native struggled last season with Winnipeg, managing just 27 points in 75 games to go along with a -5 rating. The six-foot, 205 pound winger soared to success in 2009 with a 65 point campaign with San Jose, but has failed to exceed 41 points in the five years and three teams since then. With a short-term, home-province contract, the former 8th overall pick from 2005 could cash in as a 28 year-old UFA if he revives his career this season with a group of young, dynamic Flames forwards.

The Calgary Flames hired Jordan Sigalet as the new goaltending coach on Tuesday.

He had the same role with the team's AHL affiliate in Abbotsford for the past two seasons. "I've definitely watched a lot on both of them," said Sigalet referring to Calgary's goalie tandem of Jonas Hiller and Karri Ramo. "I know Karri a little bit from being at camp last year. I think it's going to be a great one-two punch with those guys. They're going to push each other."

Jonas Hiller has recovered from appendicitis.

"I talked to him the other day and he's back, 100 percent, skating, working out," Flames GM Brad Treliving told the Calgary Herald last Thursday. "He's been back in his routine, fully functional, and no issues." He had an arthroscopic procedure in mid-July. Hiller will be Calgary's top goaltender this season, but if he falters then Karri Ramo is waiting to play in his place.

Lance Bouma remains an unsigned restricted free agent for Calgary.

"The only thing with Lance is we haven't agreed to a number yet," GM Brad Treliving said. "We'll continue to work away at it. We've still got time before training camp opens and we're hopeful we'll get something done but as of yet, we haven't. That's where that's at." Bouma generated five goals and 14 points in 78 games last season. He also racked up 181 hits while logging 12:36 of ice time per contest.
Aug 15 - 1:06 PM

Mason Raymond is expected to occupy a key role with the Flames this season.

He's projected to skate as a top-six forward, while seeing time on the penalty kill and power play. Raymond will also be looked to for leadership and scoring as a potential replacement for Michael Cammalleri. The Alberta native signed a three-year contract with Calgary in the summer.
Aug 13 - 6:11 PM

Calgary prospect Morgan Klimchuk has demonstrated real chemistry with his linemates at Canada's world junior camp this summer.

It just so happens that Klimchuk's line mates are blue chip prospects Connor McDavid and Sam Reinhart, two of the best under-20 commodities in the world. Because he's not regarded in the same esteem as the aforementioned prospects, the Calgary property is taking his opportunity very seriously ."I take camps like this very seriously. No matter where I am, I am going to play as hard as I can and whoever I’m playing for, just trying to contribute wherever I can." The goings-on of the last month should be a welcome sight to Calgary fans everywhere.
